In 1844, while in Mazatlan, famous author Herman Melville apparently spoke the above words.
In 2015, while in Mazatlan, Larry and Marilyn Vanstone stopped to read the above plaque, both nodded their heads in agreement and said;
“Hey, that’s us!”
And with that, let me tell you about some big plans in the Vanstone’s home-on wheels for this year.
We love to travel: We love state, provincial and county parks. We love being able to stop at no park. We love to explore, snoop, poke and learn. We love to see new places, try new foods (and beers, and wines) and meet new friends. Like I said, we love to travel. After a week or two in one spot, we begin to wonder what else is out there to see and do.
Depending on how you count we have been full-time RVers for a total of 8 or 9 years and in our little world, that’s a long, long time.
We have saying or years that “someday we would sell the big rig, buy a smaller one and really get out and do the “off beaten path” kind of travel we enjoy so much.
So, when we get back to southern Ontario in April, the process will begin.
Step one; we buy a small grandma and grandpa style house. A permanent home base with RV parking for your small RV too.
Next according to our current plan our big rig moves on and we find a much smaller motor home.
Current plans call for a nice clean, slightly used, class C on a Mercedes chassis. Or something like that. I can drive, Marilyn can drive and it’s small enough we can go anywhere. And stop anywhere.
Then we can truly come and go as we please. We can probably even fit in your driveway!
So, if you know anybody looking for an extremely up-to-date, high-end, good used pusher, please pass the word on.
Step one though is find the stick house and get settled.
Stay tuned; you can bet there will be more to this story.
Tell us about changes coming up in your life.
